Arnn will head the new classical academy in Leander, TX.
LEANDER, Texas, Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Responsive Education Solutions (SM) (ResponsiveEd) announced today that Dr. Kathleen Arnn will become the founding Headmaster of Founders Classical Academy in Leander, Texas. Arnn is currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Public Affairs at Morehead State University.
Arnn has a passion for classical education, as her schooling and career shows. She has taught courses in political philosophy and American political thought, and presented several academic papers, including "Justice in Aristotle's Politics and Nicomachean Ethics" and "Cicero and Augustine on Faith, Reason, and the Best Life."
Founders Classical Academies are the first classical charter schools in Texas created as a result of collaboration between Hillsdale College's Barney Charter School Initiative and ResponsiveEd. Through this initiative, the College supports the launch of K-12 charter schools. These schools follow a classical liberal arts model and have a strong civics component that will equip students to understand and defend the principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution."I am delighted at the opportunity. During my time as a college professor, I have seen how important childhood education really is. In their formative years, students need a rigorous education, academically challenging and rich in content," said Arnn. "They also need an education in character, so that they develop the habits of heart and mind that will serve them for their entire lives. The classical education at Founders is a two-fold education, in serious content and in virtue, so that students are equipped not only for success, but for happiness." Founders Classical Academy provides time-tested methods of educating students and delivers the most cutting-edge classical education in America. The entire curriculum at Founders is based in Classical Liberal Arts and Sciences with a strong emphasis on civic education. By studying the past and analyzing the present, students will be ready to contribute to the future.
